Alert 01 – 10 Derrickman Climb Assist


During a recent windstorm, a counter weight and cable on the Derrickman’s climb assist on an offshore rig became tightly wrapped around its guy wire and parted at the weight bucket connection. The weight bucket fell from a height approximately level with the monkey board, striking a light on its way down and breaking the light off its mount. No other damage or injury was incurred.
